Gabber (also Gabber house) (/ˈɡæbər/; from Dutch: [ˈxɑbər]) is a style of electronic music and a subgenre of hardcore techno. Although a house variant from Detroit, gabber music reached Amsterdam in the late 1980s, and it was the producers and DJs from Rotterdam in the early 1990s who evolved it into a harder house variant which is today known as "gabber".

  • Le early hardcore est un genre de musique électronique lancé au début des années 1990 dans le mouvement techno hardcore, et l'un des deux styles musicaux distincts du gabber. Ce n'est qu'au début du millénaire que les fans apercevront un brusque arrêt du early hardcore, qui lui, se divise par la suite en plusieurs sous-genres musicaux. Les événements diminuent et changent considérablement la scène du hardcore. Certains nostalgiques de ce style musical restent dans ce domaine et plusieurs compositeurs et labels tentent de garder la même fraicheur de l'époque où le early hardcore affluait en masse. Depuis 2007, aux Pays-Bas, le early hardcore reste très apprécié des danseurs et certains événements comme le Ghost Town, à Vechtsebanen, mixent et diffusent encore ce genre. (fr)
  • Gabber (also Gabber house) (/ˈɡæbər/; from Dutch: [ˈxɑbər]) is a style of electronic music and a subgenre of hardcore techno. Although a house variant from Detroit, gabber music reached Amsterdam in the late 1980s, and it was the producers and DJs from Rotterdam in the early 1990s who evolved it into a harder house variant which is today known as "gabber". The specific sound of Rotterdam was also created as a reaction to the house scene of Amsterdam which was seen as "snobby and pretentious". Though house tracks from Frankfurt's Marc Acardipane were quite similar to the Rotterdam style, it was the popularity of this music in the Netherlands which made Rotterdam the cradle of early hardcore. The essence of the early hardcore sound is a distorted bass drum sample, overdriven to the point where it becomes clipped into a distorted square wave and makes a recognizably melodic tone. Often the Roland Alpha Juno or the kick from a Roland TR-909 was used to create this sound. Early hardcore tracks typically include samples and synthesised melodies with the typical tempo ranging from 150 to 190 bpm. Violence, drugs and profanity are common themes in early hardcore, perceptible through its samples and lyrics, often screamed, pitch shifted or distorted. Early hardcore was popular in many countries, including the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, and Italy. In the late 1990s, it became less popular than the emerging early hardcore-influenced hardstyle. After surviving underground for a number of years, in 2002 the style reappeared in the Netherlands in a new form, mainstream hardcore. The sound became more commercial, dark and industrial. (en)
